plan. is there news to be made on this? >> yeah, i think so. senator graham and i have talked, and we have resuming the talks that were broken off two years ago. we had put together a comprehensive, detailed blueprint on immigration reform. it had the real potential for bipartisan support based on the theory that most americans are for legal immigration but very much against illegal immigration. our plan just to be quick does four things. first of all, close the border, make sure that's shut. second, make sure that there is a non-forgeable document so that employers can tell who was legal and who was illegal and once they hire someone illegally, throw the book at them. third, on legal immigration -- that will stop illegal immigration in its tracks. third, on legal immigration, let in the people we need, whether they be engineers from our universities, foreign or people to pick the crops. and fourth, a path to citizenship that's fair, which says you have to learn english, you have to go to the back of the line, you've got to have a job, and you can't commit crimes. graham and i are tal
graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to hurt her reputation, is outrageous. >> reporter: overall, though, he was congenial and reflective. >> i'm more than familiar with all the literature about the presidential overreach in second terms >> on the other hand, i didn't get re-elected just to bask in re-election. >> reporter: while the president had some tough words for his old presidential rival, john mccain, he actually was very conciliatory towards mitt romney and reiterated his hope they would sit down, saying there were a lot of ideas that mitt romney said on the campaign that he agrees with. >> chuck todd, thank you, and after that moment you saw that senator john mccain went right out on the senate floor and shot right back at the president. nbc's kelly o'donnell has more for us. >> reporter: good evening, brian, this is really the latest chapter in what is a contentious history b
graham who are calling for a select committee which would be perhaps a joint committee, house and senate, bipartisan, to have one group like a watergate panel or an iran-contra panel to look into benghazi? >> the first part of your question i would beg to differ. the democrats were there when i visited with eric nordstrom. we were there hand and glove together. they did get to participate in our witness lists. but the second part of your question, the senate is moving in the right direction. i think there is a concern if you stove pipe this and so many different committees trying to interview individuals you don't get the full picture. i support what senator mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte are doing. i think that probably is the right direction. >> thank you so much. thanks for being with us. >> thank you. >> we're only minutes away from the president's news conference. stay with us for live coverage next on "andrea mitchell reports." >> time for the your business entrepreneurs of the week. kathleen and susan are encouraging customers to shop local. they created the monthly ladies n

controls the primary process. >> senator lindsey graham said sunday he plans to revisit comprehensive immigration reform that was shelved two years ago. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. so i intend not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's an american solution to an american problem but we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. >> republican pollster tells "the new york times" it is obvious until republicans do do better among nonwhite voters they will cease to become a viable national party. we're going to have to address the fact younger people tend to be less conservative on a number of hot button social issues. a former bush adviser put it more bluntly. we have become what the left was in the '70s. former bush, if another republican man says anything about rape other than it was a horrific, violent crime, i want to personally cut out his tongue. the only woman in the house gop leadership said republicans have a communication n
republicans, including a guy like south carolina senator lindsey graham who normally ends up confirming a lot of the president's appointments, did in the first term, is promising a brutal confirmation pick if rice is picked. >> i'm not entertaining promoting anybody that i think was involved with the benghazi debacle. i'm not going to promote somebody i think has misled the country or is incompetent. that's my view of susan rice. there are other people out there. i don't want to fight with the president over something like this, but there has to be an accountability. you just can't let this happen and act as if there are no consequences. >> back to the unfolding scandal surrounding two of the country's most accomplished military leaders of their time. drawing sharp scrutiny from capitol hill, on the "today" show the chairman of the homeland security committee peter king is surprised the fbi got involved in the first place. >> this is not the type of case that usually becomes a federal investigation. cyber harassment between two women or any two people, certainly involved a love triangle or wh
cain and lindsey graham today come out vehemently against the idea of susan rice becoming secretary of state. there's a whole bunch of questions that this white house would prefer not to be dealing with today. they'd prefer to be talking about the fiscal cliff. i have a feeling they'll be disappointed. >> of course, so far, the story that started with david petraeus is so complex we actually chose to diagram it out last night. there are no new components today but washington will be all riled up with investigations and hearings for the foreseeable future. >> that's right. and there is now talk david petraeus will testify in the next couple of days, either tomorrow or friday, that should loosen, let out some steam. >> chuck todd has to sit down. the president is entering the room. >> good afternoon, everybody. please have a seat. i hear you have some questions for me. but let me just make a few remarks at the top and then i'll open it up. first of all i want to reiterate what i said on friday. right now, our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis. so our top priority has to
